Pick a good/bad one!

This one reminds us of how backwards things were not that long ago:

2009 – U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan murders 13 and wounds 32 at Fort Hood, Texas in the deadliest mass shooting at a U.S. military installation.

"Prior to the shooting, Hasan had expressed critical views described by colleagues as "anti-American". An investigation  conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) concluded that his e-mails with the late Imam Anwar al-Awlaki  were related to his authorized professional research and that he was not a threat. "

Regarding Susan B. Anthony, it's interesting to note that a Liberal President authorized issuing a stamp to honor this woman who was convicted of a crime. Lock her up !
